KPIG News Announcer Travus T. Hipp Arrested For State-Legal (Nevada) Quantity Of MediMary

Travus T. Hipp, KPIG News announcer and commentator has been arrested on-air at his home in Silver City Nevada for what appears to be a state-legal amount of medical Marijuana (14 plants). Apparently that law collides with the authorities belief that any quantity over one ounce implies intent to sell or distribute.

The Meaning of C.O.Y.O.T.E

There IS NO Travus T. Hipp Morning News Or Commentary Today.

Why, You ask?

You MIGHT start with the hypocricy of the Nevada USA state government and it's 'law' enforcement apparatus.


A repeat of yesterday's commentary follows for the as-yet un-informed.

After the commentary, John Kay and Steppenwolf have something to say...

The Nevada Appeal newspaper finally picked up the story: http://www.nevadaappeal.com/article/20081101/NEWS/810319970/1070&ParentProfile=1058&title=Radio%20host%20arrested%20again%20for%20marijuana%20in%20Silver%20City

He is apparently being held without bail, but that most likely won't last past arraignment

If he doesn't appear on-air Monday November 3, I will attempt to get more info from the PIG.

Travus goes waay back to the inception of KFAT radio (KPIG's progenitor) and I suspect someone at the station will know if he's been incarcerated.

It's notable that he had been arrested last year as well, and in my research I discovered that he had some sort of dispute with a neighbor regarding the 'squatting' of a local mine building by a person seeking to live there and had stood in that person's support at a local council meeting apparently leading to a vendetta on the part of at least one other resident of Silver City Nevada.

Alternative culture in America is under attack by the people Hunter S. Thompson referred to quite correctly as "Greedheads".

Having lived in Ward Colorado in the mid-70s, I can attest to the 'yuppification' of these rural hamlets by people who do not have the same cultural mores as the people who resided there when the land was cheap and commuter-inaccessible, much as has happened over the years to the community at Last Chance Road up the coast and other places too numerous to count in California and nationwide.

More on Monday...
